A cutting board shaped like a pig or fish, how nice! Both are made from live oak and cherry. Live oak is found mainly in the Southern States. It's rated as one of the hardest woods of North America. It has a Janka hardness rating of 2,680 lbf compared to white oak's rating of 1,360 lbf. It measures 15" L x 12" W x 3/4" T. It has rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from sliding and well above and liquid that be under it. These cutting board are a great size to be a serving platter, great for charcuterie spreads and of course fileting fish or cutting foods. The edges are rounded over. Grab this one fast!
My name is John, and of course that’s were J comes from. My wife’s name is Brenda and that’s what the B stands for. I only use hardwoods, so that's were the Hardwoods comes from. The hardwoods are primarily found in Florida.
Here at J. B. Hardwoods every item goes through the same meticulous process to achieve a finished product that will add beauty to any home. With proper care, you and your loved ones will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
I’m the craftsman behind J. B. Hardwoods, and for me the process starts in the sawmill. I hand pick each board to ensure the highest quality from the start. Once back at my local shop just outside of Tampa, Fl designs are created, boards are ripped to desired width and are now ready for gluing. All of my projects are made using Titebond II Wood Glue, a non-toxic--FDA approved for indirect food contact adhesive. Once a piece has been glued and shaped they are ready for planning to desired thickness then sanding to ensure only the smoothest finished product possible! After all sanding has taken place, I then soak them in food grade mineral oil overnight and rub in natural bees wax for a great natural finish that will last.
Care and Maintenance: Never allow to soak in water! Clean with a damp cloth and wipe dry. Wipe with a food grade butcher block conditioner or mineral oil to keep the finish looking new and to get the most life out of your purchase!
NOTE: You are purchasing the actual piece pictured in each listing (unless otherwise noted).
All pieces will be individually wrapped in bubble wrap.
Inquire with me directly about custom orders! Anything you see can be made out of any type of wood you see in my projects and variations in sizes can and will be accommodated happily! Thank you.
